Dear Butler D53 Families and Staff,
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory due to overnight ice accumulation. After consultation with area superintendents, First Student and the district's buildings and grounds team, Brook Forest Elementary and Butler Junior High school buildings will be closed on Tuesday, January 23rd to prevent travel to and from school.
All teaching and learning will take place remotely. Start and end times of learning remain the same. This will be a full day of learning. Building principals will send specific information and guidelines for eLearning.
While the buildings will be closed, we will continue to make sure that impactful learning still continues for all of our learners while keeping staff and students safe. This has been and continues to be our priority.
If you have any questions, please contact your building principal.
Dr. Paul O’Malley
Superintendent of Schools
